In this presentation, I discuss some of my current work addressing personal
digital data ontologies and practices under my 'Living Digital Data'
research program. In so doing, I draw on some theoretical perspectives that
I am developing on the following issues: the social, cultural and political
dimensions of digital data; the notions of 'lively devices' and 'lively
data'; the personal digital data assemblage; and the concept of 'data
sense', incorporating digital sensors, embodied human senses and human
sense-making. The discussion will be illustrated with examples from several
of my empirical research projects.

Professor Deborah Lupton is Centenary Research Professor in the News &
Media Research Centre, Faculty of Arts & Design, University of Canberra.

academia, and digital health technologies.
